IncrediBooth for iPhone 4 - app review

Remember the little photo booths at amusement parks you would cram into with a bunch of friends to get a strip photos printed? IncrediBooth is an app designed to mimic that experience. It uses the front-facing camera on the iPhone 4, so this app is only available for the iPhone 4.

IncrediBooth has a simple and strait forward design. The photo taking screen shows a little window that displays what your front-facing camera sees and underneath is red button with a black dial around it. The black wheel is labeled with 1, 2, and 3 and indicates which effect you're using. IncrediBooth does not provide the description of each effect, but through experimentation I discovered that effect 1 is black and white, effect 2 is a red tint, and effect 3 is a green tint. Tapping the red button initiates the photo session. InrediBooth takes 4 photos for a strip; there is no way way change this.

To view your photo strips tap "photos outside". Here you can scroll through all the different photo strips you have taken. Tap a strip to see more details and share to Facebook, email, or photo library. Tapping a specific photo on the strip will allows you to share that one photo instead of the entire strip.

IncrediBooth is a fun little app and does what it's designed to do. The artwork and design is great and does a good job of replicating the photo booths that IncrediBooth is striving to imitate.

Pros

  • Fun (and inexpensive) little app
  • Strips looks great
  • Share to Facebook and email
  • 3 different effect

Cons

  • No description of effects - just 1, 2 and 3
  • Cannot choose the length of a strip

IncrediBooth for iPhone 4 - app review

22 Comments

I am a big fan of hipstamatic and swankolab so as soon as this app hit the appstore, I bought it. I had a photobooth at my wedding so this app is a ton of fun for us! It works great and I really don't have any complaints, especially since the price is so great!

For the first few minutes, I was wondering how you got the rocker and volume switch on the right side of the iPhone, until you showed the app's interface and I realized that the entire video is horizontally flipped!
Great review, by the way, I'm buying it now.

Leanna,
Here you go:
Grab onto the slider dial and turn it to you desired setting. Choose from a Helga Lens with Supergrain B&W film, the classic John S lens with SuperContrast film, or a custom Kaimal lens with Infrared film.
from their website, buttons explained! Wish I could take a picture with you.

haha, amazing how a girl reviewer gets great reviews herself. sorry to be the odd one out, but poor review. i suggest writing down your lines.

Women with short hairstyles aren't omar's cup of tea. However, Omar thinks she has an adorable smile, ya feel me? "how do you expect to run with the wolves at night, if you're spending your days sparring with the puppies?"

How cheesy and ugly does that lime green "bumper" look on that phone? lol For that matter, any bumper is going to look like crap. Why cover it up, besides the fact it won't work properly without it?

Bought incredibooth app for my iPhone and love it. Had lots of fun getting into the "booth" with family and friends. I bought a black bumper at my local Apple store and I daresay, it looks great! Keeps my iPhone looking sleek.

Nice post. I was checking continuously this site and I'm impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the last part I care for such info much. I was looking for this specific information for a long time. Thankyou and best of luck.
